A fine history, written especially for children, it celebrates the rich diversity of the people and culture of the British Isles as well as the discoveries, inventions, empires and rebellions that shaped the nation. All the great events of British history, plus many lesser known episodes are clearly described, and there are many illustrations. A lovely book for the primary school pupil's bookshelf.
A definitive history of Britain which tells the story of two islands, Britain and Ireland, and all the people, Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English, who have lived in them. A comprehensive history of Britain that delves into some edgy and less well-known events as well as shining a light on the more traditional narratives of Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English history - William the Conqueror's arrival in 1066, Magna Carta, the Great Fire of London, the execution of Charles I, the abolition of slavery, the Battle of Britain and many more, as well as all the famous characters we know and love (or hate). This jacketed hardback edition is lavishly illustrated by Irish artist P.J. Lynch.
